John Palliser, durham Member Since December 2011 Artist Statement John Palliser was born in England and after a career in Military and Security Services he started painting in earnest. He is passionate about his work and a true patriot, believing that wherever you hail from on this great Island of ours there is in every proud British person the beating heart of a lion, supported by the fire of the dragon and the blade of the claymore. We are the defenders of the faith and encapsulate the very meaning of honour, truth, chivalry, and fair play. Those who would do us harm will see the very best of us in return; they will know the British Lion has very sharp teeth!
He believes very much there is a place for art in politics and that true honour and patriotism comes through the family , leading by example, not from governments whose vested interests come first ,often at the expence of the British People.
